International Federation of Airline Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA)

Insight from Capt. Don Wykoff, President of IFALPA

“Our relocation was prompted by the increasing number of files that we handle in conjunction with the Air Navigation Commission of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and our wish to be closer to other aviation associations already here, such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Airports Council International (ACI). IFALPA already had a liaison office with ICAO in Montréal for over 20 years, but in the wake of a strategic evaluation we conducted in 2011, we determined that our organization would be better served by setting up its international headquarters in the hub of the decision-making process. This hub is here.”

“Montréal International provided support at every stage of the project, from London to Montréal. It would have been difficult to undertake this relocation without the legal, financial and logistical assistance they provided. We have had an outstanding welcome, and look forward to building partnerships with Montréal’s IO and business communities.”
